How do we deal with Bullying at SGHS?
Skipton Girls’ High School School is highly committed to providing a safe, positive, warm and nurturing ethos and environment for all of our students, so they can thrive in our learning environment and engage positively with new experiences and gain understanding about society and culture.
It is because of this that we value the qualities of honesty, trust, compassion, persistence, optimism, resilience, challenge and mutual respect in our school community.
Bullying of any kind is not tolerated. If bullying does occur, all students should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are an OPEN and transparent school. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell a member of staff.
- Students and parents are strongly encouraged to report bullying incidents to staff
- In cases of bullying, the incidents will be recorded by staff in the first instance.
- All bullying behaviour or threats of bullying are investigated and the bullying stopped immediately
- We will always work with both the victim and the bully using restorative strategies to try and change the situation for the better.
- Parents will be informed and will be asked to come in to a meeting to discuss with a Senior Leader or a member of our Student Progress Team.
- If necessary and appropriate, our PCSO (Ms S.Hargreaves) will be consulted
- We will always respond to an incident proportionately, taking opportunities to teach positive alternatives and to model calm and reflective behaviours.
